How Do You Clean a Conventional Pond Sieve?

Conventional pond sieves are hard to clean


To properly compare pond sieves, you also have to ask: "How do I clean it?"  Conventional pond sieves do a good job of capturing fish poop, dead worms, and submerged debris - but how do you clean it out of the pond sieve?  Conventional pond sieves are large - as you can see from the photos - and you'll have to reach your hand down into them to remove all this gunk.  What do you think this smells like?

Another thing to consider is that conventional pond sieves don't come with a lid!  You have to pay extra for a lid - and they're already very expensive!  If you don't pay extra for a lid, you get to look at this whenever you're looking at your pond!  Don't forget to add the cost of shoulder length gloves!
